    I'm looking for pictures, drawings or dimensions for the portion of the spare tire assembly that attaches to the tailgate.

    Thanks,

    Burt,

    I'm talking about the original GM fender mounted type. I had a complete one that came off the truck. It was in a storage shed - my brother threw it out when he cleaned the shed out. He also tossed a like new rear seat. Oh well. I managed to find another minus the portion that attaches to the tailgate. I'm thinking I'll have to fabricate a replacement. thats why I'm looking for drawings and dimensions. Any help you guys can provde will be helpful.

    thanks!

    aaa ok, so did you SLAP your brother??
    I would take a look at some of the aftermarket swing outs that are bumper only mounted. Like SEC a few others on the 73-91 board have made there own too so you may want to search or post that board also... good luck

    Eric,

    Thanks for the pics. Unfortunately my carrier is of a different design. The main tube on mine is shaped like a hoop. If my memory serves me right the portion that attached to the tailgate was a round shaft with a tapered collar mounted to a flat plate.
